Article about Atomic Fiction's work on Deadpool

Got a nice mention from Ryan Tudhope in this overview of the VFX work we did at Atomic Fiction on Deadpool. Thanks to my great animation team for seeing it thru: Cameron Folds, Julie Jaros, Guido Muzzarelli, Scott Fritts, Don Waller, Mark Powers, Jeremy Bolan, Ryan Bradley, Adam Klein, and Mike Dacko.

I'm particularly proud of the shot below, which seems silly because it's not a "hero" shot of our CG Deadpool. But in fact, the interior car shots were a big deal because the entire background was CG and there were a lot of car continuity issues, and the motion of the CG SUV became the camera car with the matchmove riding on top of it...

Deadpool comes out February 12

I am just finishing up my Animation Supervision duties at Atomic Fiction on Deadpool, for which we did some very complex vfx in a couple of sequences.  You can see some of our work in this trailer, but I'm still under NDA so I can't really say what it is.  Go see it!

Hell and Back available online

Hell and Back didn't get a lot of attention when it was released in theaters, but it's now available on video and online and maybe it will find it's audience.  Check it out!
